About Janet Kiley
We fell in love with Destin when we came on the BEST vacation ever in 1995! We began an annual vacation tradition that was awesome for our kids as they grew up. We loved it so much here that now we live here full time and rent out our home, plus other homes and condos in the area. The people are friendly and the beach and clear waters just can't be beat!
Why Janet Kiley chose Destin
We owned a Gulf front condo for many years and realized we wanted something bigger so our kids could bring friends when we came on vacation. We purchased this house in the middle of construction, which was great because we could add some of our own touches before it was finished (surround sound, etc.). This area of Crystal Beach has a great, short, almost level beach access, and the home is just a few yards away. We love the area because you have the conveniences of restaurants and stores very close by, yet the neighborhood is quiet and very family-oriented.
What makes this House unique
We tried to think of just about everything you need so you don't have to load your car to the brim with 'stuff.' Just bring a swimsuit and beach towel, and you are set! We really enjoy entertaining, so we furnished our home with conveniences that make entertaining a breeze. We hope you enjoy everything Skipper's Escape as to offer!

Very nice home and my family enjoyed he vacation
I would be happy to stay in this home again . But we purchased a home in Destin.why we were vacationing.
Wow! Congratulations on your new home! Thanks for the 5-star review. We really appreciate it Kevin!
Fantastic family vacation
Our vacation was wonderful. My husband is not fond of water and he wasn't as excited about vacation as I had hoped. After arriving at your home, he was very impressed with everything about the house and all its amenities. Since my husband is an artist, I told him he needed to take his paints and canvasses along and paint while the grandchildren were in the pool. He painted by the pool house and on the patio. He found it so enjoyable to be outside with the grandchildren playing in the pool and he was enjoying his painting.
On Saturday as we were heading back to Ohio, he said it was one of the best vacations we have had. I am hoping that we can possibly stay at your home again in the upcoming years. It was a great vacation.
Our daughter and her husband were talking about your home and all that you had provided. As they said, it is a very well furnished home and a lot of niceties that many homes do not have. Each family having their own bathrooms, the kitchen completely furnished, the entertainment system, the beach items... chairs, umbrella, wagon and toys.... everything was wonderful.
Thanks for a great place!!!!!
We’re so delighted with your husband’s comment that your stay was “one of the best vacations”!! I’m so glad he enjoyed the patio area and had plenty of room to enjoy his painting. Even though we are local, we enjoy spending time with extended family and friends at our beach home so we like to make sure it is well stocked for both us - and especially our guests! We hope to see you and your sweet family on another trip to Destin! Thanks again for staying with us!
Skipper's Escape was a wonderful "escape" from our cold Wisconsin winter. The home was clean, comfortable, and nicely furnished. There were plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for us and our guests to relax and enjoy privacy too! The cabana bungalow provided a terrific bonus. The online pictures and descriptions are accurate, even better in person. February's weather was warm, and with the beach cart and chairs, we frequently walked the two minutes to the Gulf's gorgeous sand and surf. Other days we lounged poolside reading or visiting. Our Golden, KC, loved her yard space as well. 2017 was our 4th year to visit Destin, and we enjoy staying at the quieter end of Scenic 98. Yet, shopping and restaurants are close by. Skipper's Escape was perfect for us, our dog, and our guests; we hope to return. Both Chris and Janet were friendly and there for us if we had any questions or needs.
We would recommend this property to anyone.... as long as we get first dibs!
We really appreciate the review of your “escape” to our Destin home!! February was definitely a delightful month here, and I’m so glad you all were able to enjoy it with us! Thanks so much for your recommendation, and we hope to see you on your next winter “escape” to our area!!
Loved the house and location
My husband and I (and our dog Maggie) stayed at Skipper's Escape during the month of January. This was our first visit to Destin and we were very happy that we chose this house. The house is beautiful and nicely decorated in a casual beach cottage theme. It is also in a great location. Nice walkable neighborhood, two minute walk to the beach and a short drive to grocery, shopping and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying at this property.
